REALTIME conjures VFX magic for the final season of Sky’s A Discovery of Witches

“Collaborating with series VFX Supervisor Neil Riley and the team at Bad Wolf, this season brought us a whole new set of magic spells to visualise, from concepts and storyboards to intricate FX work.” (Jonathan Rawlinson, Executive Producer)

We were honoured to re-join Bad Wolf for the third season of Sky TV’s A Discovery of Witches, helping to bring to life magic performed by Diana Bishop (Teresa Palmer).

Following several sequences crafted for the second season (which saw us nominated for Best Visual Effects at the Broadcast Tech Innovation awards), our team was tasked with creating magical VFX that showcase how much Diana’s powers have grown. 

A Discovery of Witches is now streaming on Sky TV and Now TV in the UK, and Sundance Now, Shudder and AMC+ in the US.
